Interesting and Fun Facts about Tony

Biography
(Excerpts from Cafe Arabica and the All Movie Guide) 

Shalhoub's family is from Lebanon and the American Midwest. Tony and his nine brothers and sisters were born and raised in Green 
Bay, Wisconsin. Their father emigrated from Lebanon to the U.S. as an orphan at the age 
of ten. He later married Shalhoub's mother, a second-generation Lebanese-American, and founded a family company from the seedling 
of one grocery store in the center of Green Bay. It was the American dream with a 
distinct Arab flavor. 

Tony Shalhoub does not remember any Arab-Americans in Green Bay that he was 
not related to. His extended family worked 
and relaxed together. "[There was] a strong sense of socializing and people helping each other out," Shalhoub said. His father dreamt that his ten children would stay in that community and work in the family business "but it didn't really take on," Shalhoub said 
with a tinge of regret. "Many of us didn't 
want to stay in that community. In some 
ways it would have been nice." 

Before the big city beckoned, Tony Shalhoub's brothers and sisters introduced him to the theater. Tony was just six years old. One of 
his elder sisters volunteered her little brother to play an extra in a high school production of "The King and I." Even though the young Tony was left standing on the wrong side of the curtain during the final dress rehearsal, he became hooked to the theater. 

Since that small musical production in Green Bay, Tony Shalhoub has consistently worked 
on his skills and range as an actor. He 
attended the Yale Drama School and trained 
for the theater. Upon graduation, Shalhoub joined the American Repertory Theater (ART) in Cambridge, MA. Shalhoub said that ART 
was a fantastic place to launch a serious 
acting career because of the flexibility and skills required from every cast member. ART puts on two to three shows a week. After four seasons with ART, Shalhoub moved to NYC where he met his wife, a fellow actress - Brooke Adams. 

They later had two children, Josie - who was adopted by Brooke earlier on and Sophie.

Broadway brought Shalhoub success not only 
in his career, but in his personal life as well: 
he was nominated for a Tony for his role in Conversations With My Father and he met his future wife, actress Brooke Adams, while acting in The Heidi Chronicles. It was not 
long after his Broadway success that Shalhoub made his feature debut, as a doctor in the 1990 AIDS drama Longtime Companion. 
Shalhoub's film career has been a testament 
to his range and a compliment to his abilities. Though prone to comedy, his dramatic roles have gained him just as much, if not more, recognition than his comedic roles. Winning the Best Supporting Actor award from the National Society of Film Critics for his well-researched role in Big Night (1996).
(ALONG WITH SEVERAL OTHER MOVIES 
LISTED ON MY FILMOGRAPHY PAGE). 
He would return to solid ground with his role as an obsessive-compulsive detective in the well-received television pilot Monk (2002). Directed by Galaxy Quest helmer Dean Parisot, the pilot for Monk successfully paved the way 
for the curiously innovative USA series to 
follow and found the actor warmly 


re-embracing the medium that had 
propelled him to stardom.  Also, he's returning 
to film more episodes of Monk for the USA Network.  His role in Against the Ropes with 
Meg Ryan is soon to be coming out.  And, if 
his star rises even more - there will be no 
telling where this talented star will next be 
seen!

Cute Quote from 'Meg's Boyfriend of the Week':

"This week, the Boyfriend is here for two reasons. First, it's the usual -- he's cute, I 
like him, and I felt like telling the world about that. Second, he's got a new show out, I like 
it, and I felt like telling the world that if it 
gets cancelled because you didn't watch it, I 
will be sending my assistant, Vito, out to 
break all your kneecaps. The USA Network is about to become your best friend and savior, amigas. Repeat after me: Fridays at 10pm. Fridays at 10pm. Fridays at 10pm."
Write Up and Picture of Tony in PEOPLE, Dec 2, 2002 - 'Surprisingly Sexy':
First Impression:  "My eyes are bloodshot with dark circles under them," he says.  "They make women want to take care of me."

The X-factor:  "Tony has great dimples and a wonderful smile," says Crystal Bernard, Shalhoub's costar on the 1990-97 NBC seris Wings.  And yes, she loves his eyes:  "They're dark, soulful and direct."

Well-connected:  Shalhoub lives in L.A. with actress wife Brooke Adams, 53, and their two daughters, ages 14 and 9.  He's quick to admit his worst habit.  "I talk on the phone too much," he says.  Adams, who met her husband when both were on Broadway in The Heidi Chronicles, agrees.  "We'll be out together, finally, just the two of us.  And he'll call one of his brothers and talk for an hour."

Go-to guy:  "The sexiest thing about Tony is that I can rely on him forever," says Adams.  "And you know what?  Now that he's becoming kind of famous, he looks a lot cuter to me!"
